Project PAUSE Shakes the Stigma of Neuropsychiatric Symptoms

Neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) of Alzheimer's can have a devastating impact on patients, their loved ones, and caregivers.

That’s why we, at the Alliance for Aging Research, along with a growing community of advocates are committed to combatting the stigma surrounding NPS.
